This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Ken Follett’s magnificent new historical epic begins, as five interrelated families move through the momentous dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women’s suffrage.
A thirteen-year-old Welsh boy enters a man’s world in the mining pits.…An American law student rejected in love finds a surprising new career in Woodrow Wilson’s White House.… A housekeeper for the aristocratic Fitzherberts takes a fateful step above her station, while Lady Maud Fitzherbert herself crosses deep into forbidden territory when she falls in love with a German spy.…And two orphaned Russian brothers embark on radically different paths when their plan to emigrate to America falls afoul of war, conscription, and revolution.
From the dirt and danger of a coal mine to the glittering chandeliers of a palace, from the corridors of power to the bedrooms of the mighty, Fall of Giants takes us into the inextricably entangled fates of five families—and into a century that we thought we knew, but that now will never seem the same again.…

I just had a cursory recollection of my history class on WWI in HS, now I believe I know it well. It was a good book.
Fall of Giants
The book was great! I’ve read it twice and also the other two books in the trilogy.
This book was a good read, kept me entertained for sure. Occasionally I would get bored with the history and politics involved but never with the characters. So, if you're a history buff or willing to do a little skimming, I would recommend this book for sure.
